Canadian College of Performing Arts Announces their 17th season 2014-2015

Canadian College of Performing Arts Announces their  17th season 2014-2015.

My regular readers know that I am a big supporter of the Canadian College of Performing Arts–my son graduated from the college in December 2007 and I’ve been volunteering regularly since 2005.  I love the opportunity to meet young passionate individuals who are pursuing their dreams, and then follow their careers when they leave school.

To many Victorians, the college remains an unknown. Here’s your chance to learn more, and experience the excellent productions of one of Canada’s finest performing arts training facilities.

CCPA Presents a Year of Firsts and World Premieres!

The Canadian College of Performing Arts (CCPA) is pushing the performance envelope for its 17th season; beginning with its first production. Company C, the Year III program of the college will present a two week run with the Tony Award-Winning musical Spring Awakening in association with The Belfry Theatre and with Direction by Michael Shamata.

“This is not only an opportunity to bring in one Canada’s most renowned  artistic leaders but a chance to provide Victoria audiences with an extended run,” says Darold Roles, the college’s Artistic Director. “This is only one of the exiting high points of a very different season for us,” adds Roles.
